Growing Together: Winemaking Begets Cheesemaking on Pennyroyal Farm

Nice story by Jim Clarke for Culture:

Sarah Bennett was working on her master’s degree in viticulture and enology at the University of California–Davis when she met and befriended Erika Scharfen, who was studying animal science and had previously worked as a cheesemaker in France. When Scharfen came along to a wine department get-together, “she wasn’t really saying much while these wine geeks picked apart the wines,” according to Bennett, “but then the cheese came out, and she described them using the exact same terms! We were speaking the same language.” After that, she adds, “we tasted a lot of cheeses and began talking about a farmstead creamery.”

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
